Replacing Missing Teeth
As noted, patients can lose teeth due to a range of different factors. During your consultation, Dr. Benefield will perform a comprehensive exam to determine the overall health of your smile. Conducting a comprehensive exam helps Dr. Benefield identify any problems and address them before suggesting a tooth replacement. Once any dental issues are resolved, Dr. Benefield will determine if a dental implant, denture, or dental bridge is right for you.
- Dental Bridge: A dental bridge is traditionally used to replace several consecutive missing teeth. A dental bridge can be custom made to fit naturally and comfortably in the mouth. Depending on your overall oral health and needs, a dental bridge can be removable or fixed into place using dental implants.
- Dentures: Dentures are used to replace the top, bottom, or both arches of teeth. Dentures are a natural looking solution for your missing teeth. If needed, dentures can be secured using strategically placed dental implants.
- Dental Implants: A dental implant can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental implants are small titanium post that mimics the natural tooth root. Dental implants can provide a long-lasting, natural looking, and stable replacement option for patients who are missing teeth.
